Rask is everything us Blindwater players have been wanting and asking for. His spell list is pretty damn amazing and he is only limited by the few options Blindwater gets model-wise. The model has a lot of little details all over but I was still able to finish him in one painting session. I’ve played him numerous times and really love his versatility. He’s able to create decent threat ranges and harass both Warmachine and Hordes with his ammo choices for his ranged weapon. He also makes the option of replacing your Blackhide Wrastler with the Swamp Horror more viable to do his spell list. Now if we only had access to more magic weapons. DAMN YOU CRYX AND MENOTH!!!
So many ammo types, so little rate of fire…
White P3 Primer
Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
Citadel Badab Black wash all over the miniature
Minimal highlights (teeth & eyes))
Bases consist of mixed grit sizes, Army Painter Swamp Tufts & Flame/Red Mix Leaves
I then varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Testors Dullcote to subdue the shine
So the second I heard about this model awhile ago I instantly thought it would be a great model to try out water effects. I finally put him on the painting table because of Rask. The thought of him with FURY would make anybody giddy. The problem of course was doing a simple conversion to make it water effects ready without having to go through the hassle of sculpting. I made this very simple TUTORIAL on how to do that. It took me several days to finish the water effects since each layer requires about 24 hours to dry and you can only layer it about 1/8″ deep at a time. Besides that I saved a lot of time on painting since it’s only a portion of the original model. Since the water dries clear you also have to paint the base itself or base it with other elements if desired. I decided to paint a mix of colors using browns and greens for that dirty Bayou look. For being my first model using water effects I am pretty happy with the results!
He will slap you three times then kiss you. It’s ABUSIVE but he loves you, really.

Used Citadel Badab Black wash all over the miniature
Minimal highlights (membrane, eyes, & teeth)

Vallejo Gloss Varnish on his lower body parts, mouth, teeth, eyes, & water to give that wet/moist feel
Oh Maelok the Dreadbound. I really really like him. He’s tricky with the vectors he can create reviving dead Gatormen Posse models. It can be very effective during his FEAT turn as well since it will almost always insure some model(s) can make it to their caster if your positioning is right. Get creative with SPINY GROWTH and you can have certain Undead Posse Members at ARM22 during the FEAT round thanks to ZOMBIFY from the Witch Doctor which is dead sexy. Running a Witch Doctor or two is a must when using this undead warlock and his Tier list is actually pretty decent compared to what I’m used to in Khador. Some choose to break it in order to run Swamp Gobbers Bellows Crew to protect him from long range attacks. I usually just have him close to a Ironback Spitter to be GIRDED and act as a TRANSFER beast just in case. I’m really interested in seeing how he might synergize with the upcoming Bog Trog Shamblers unit.
For any Gator players out there, I highly recommend giving him a try! I posted lists below.
